Quotes About Learning Geography

"To learn that his treasures had been lost months ago, and so far away, was no different from learning of the death, similarly distant in time and geography, of a beloved person. Such a death bears a peculiar imprint of doubt. To be told one day that someone has gone off to the other side of the world, and with whom you expect momentarily to be reunited, has actually been dead for many months, during which you have been going on with your life, unaware of this subtraction that has taken place, makes a mockery of the finality of death. Death is reduced to news. And news is always a little unreal—which is why we bear to take in so much of it." - Author: Susan Sontag

Quotes About Surviving Struggles

"[Theres] one... thing I can tell you about human nature: beautiful people are the last ones you want to befriend. Beautiful people float through life thinking that its perfectly normal for others to gaze at them adoringly, and open doors for them, and defer to their opinion... Doesnt anyone understand that beautiful people are stupid? Thats why nature made them beautiful, so theyd have a chance at surviving in the wild. And how do they survive? They use people and then they drop people, and they float away on the currents of their own gorgeousness to the next poor girl who thinks that being friends with a beutiful person will somehow make her beautiful, too. Ive got news for you: Hanging around beautiful people just makes you uglier by comparison." - Author: Amy Kathleen Ryan

Quotes About Faith And Guidance

"We can offer women what they want most of all, cures for the most common ailments of this world...

Quotes About Easily Offended

"I had a feeling she probably made friends with people pretty easily, and that could be a good thing for me too, since Id always been a little on the reserved side. She probably had offended a lot of people too, but maybe they all just overlooked it, as i was finding it surprisingly easy to do. She seemed genuinely oblivious to the fact that anything she said could be potentially insulting, and for some reason that made it kind of forgivable." - Author: Jessi Kirby

Quotes About Lust For A Woman
